People: Who Needs Them?

People: Who Needs Them? | Mom Psych | Scoop.it

But as Curt and Anne Bartol point out, two out of every three people will score in the ‘average’ range on the extraversion dimension, thus disqualifying them from studies based on extraversion and introversion.

Familiar faces trigger the same brain response as unfamiliar faces.
